Online shopping has made our life so comfortable that we hardly wait a minute to make the next purchase. I have myself bought almost everything online right from smartphones to books to dresses to tops and skirts. However, my newfound love on the Internet has been ethnic wear. This is the time when we have festivals in full swing followed by weddings and that’s when you need to be on point with your ethnic wear. That’s where your search for everything glamorous and perfect begins. And as is the norm for females, we are spoilt for choices!
With the forthcoming wedding season, we love to don the desi girl avatar and what’s more elegant than getting into the 9 yards to get into the perfect look. When I got married 2 yrs back, I went to the famous markets where shopkeepers would make you wear different sarees complementing you on your height, physique, completion etc. with the aim to make maximum sales. They would even make you eat the famous tikkis and chaat of their respective markets…Sounds fun? But this can be quite a ride with different hassles that come with it- parking, salesman being extra pushy and not getting the right pick for your look.
What happened at the Satya Paul showroom at DLF Promenade recently… Any guesses? ChicLifeByte readers this time it was King Khan’s wife & the first lady of Bollywood, Gauri Khan, the enigmatic diva who presented Satya Paul’s Spring Summer 2016 collection ‘Cocktails and Dreams’ commemorating the brand’s 30th anniversary in the Indian fashion industry.
Shopping for sarees online wasn’t what I had done before. Even when I got married I did my majority shopping online due to lack of time which primarily consisted of clutches, shoes, honeymoon dresses etc but could not risk buying my trousseau online. I recently stumbled upon trivenisarees.com, an E-commerce portal for amazing ethnic shopping. Set up in 2011, the website is a one-stop solution for a wide range of ethnic collection – salwar suits, lehenga cholis, lehenga sarees, kurtis, jewellery, cotton & silk sarees. Triveni is actually a 30 year old saree manufacturer based out of Surat, India and now offers a wide variety of ethnic wear and lives upto its heritage.
